Kaha Gardens in Kailua, on the windward side of Oahu is a living example of how individual homeowners can help improve the local environment through the use of native vegetation. Sadly many residential landscapes are not sustainable and may negatively affect the greater ecosystem of the island. Join our project by replacing grass and invasive species along 150 yards of stream bank. Volunteers will plant native Hawaiian varietals which can be used for soil stabilization, bio-filtration and water conservation. With your green thumb, we can complete and maintain the garden pathway to showcase how plantings might appear in their own backyard which will educate and inspire hope for the future.
